I use 1and1 to host my websites, I am trying to install silverstripe but running into a problem. Please help, thanks!

When I visit I see:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /homepages/31/d258996257/htdocs/install.php on line 518

You require PHP5. This error is because you're using PHP4.
